Trump Signs U.S. Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty over Golan Heights

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday signed a proclamation recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, a border area seized from Syria in 1967.

"This was a long time in the making," Trump said alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House. U.S. recognition for Israeli control over the territory breaks with decades of international consensus.

Netanyahu called the recognition "historic" and said the Golan Heights, which are still claimed by Syria, would remain permanently under Israeli control. "We shall never give it up," he said.

"Your proclamation comes at a time when Golan is more important than ever for our security," he said.

LoL big LOL indeed.

What will the giraffe do ? Nothing as usual! Syria is shrinking by the day under Bashar Assad and he doesn’t react because all he can do is hire shabbi7a and Hizbala terrorists to slaughter unarmed civilians and gas them. He doesn’t have what it takes to claim what once belonged to his country...
